If God Doesn't Change, Why Should I?
Baby's first steps When my little girls were learning to walk, I paid close attention to their progress.

Around the age of 10 months or so, they were both very close to walking. Each one could stand up on her own and take several steps. My wife and I would often sit on the floor and coax them to walk back and forth between us.

But oddly enough, even though they were fully capable of walking, they inevitably preferred to crawl. They knew they weren't going to tip over when they crawled. They knew they could get where they were going on their hands and knees, and, well, I guess they lived by the motto, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

And why not live by that motto? I often live by it, as I'm sure you do too. It's wisdom.

Common sense. Street smarts. If something is working, why change it? After all, who knows what the outcome might be?

But God likes to move us out of our comfort zones. I hate that about God. He likes to mess with my happy. Why can't He just let me live near the line of contentedness and stay there?

I'm not good with change. My wife will inform you of this fact. She, on the other hand, loves change. She wants to change the comforter on our bed every time the weather changes. And it's not simply a lighter comforter for the summer and a thicker, warmer comforter for the winter.

No, she wants to change the comforter just because she enjoys change. She's obviously more like God than me. I'd rather have the same comforter for the next 10 years. Let me get used to it. read more

DAILY DEVOTIONALS
For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship.
And she said, As the Lord thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die.
Do not gloat when your enemy falls; when he stumbles, do not let your heart rejoice ...
